    Isn't it amazing what an animal will try and eat? That is a great story!!
     

  3. It sounds to me like they both lost.;) That is scary to think of anything tough enough to even attempt swallow a 6 foot gator.:eek:

    Think of a 20ft anaconda and what they can eat. A 6 foot gator would be the appetizer. Anyhow, those pythons have become quite a problem down there in the everglades. Perfect environment for them.
     
  5. Yeah I never realized that they had become a problem until I read that article. It does sound like there are a bunch of them. I don't believe I would venture into those everglades far without a gun on my side...and a nice sharp knife;)

    I went on a tour of the everglades when I was down there last summer. The small part that I saw was amazing and I would definitely not venture in there without protectionof some sort. The skeeters alone would make a meal out of you!

  9. If Burmese Pythons are that prevalent in the Everglades, I sure wouldn't go in there, even with my pistols...here's an old story I remembered from "Reptile World" a magazine I used to get. I have a 13 yr old Ball Python myself but those Burmese get up to 20 feet long and they are pretty mean at times.
